Recently I made a mistake that may cost a great deal of traffic to my new web site.
Let me explain...
I studied so many books about Internet marketing over last couple of years that I decided to start a new web site, and share my knowladge and experience with other fellow Internet marketers.
Since I read lots of information about search engine optimization (SEO), I intended to optimize all of my web pages for search engines from beginning on, expecting Google to be my number one source of traffic in near future.
I did an extensive keyword research using WordTraker, made a blueprint for my product and article pages, and time has come to choose a great domain name for my new project.
I went to GoDaddy, famous domain name registar, tried this and that, and finally came up with a beautiful domain name related to Internet marketing - netmarketingstrategies.com
You probably know that Internet marketing is a very competitive niche, so I was glad that this domain name was still available. I registered it immediately.
My site was up and running in 48 hours. Now I needed some fresh web content, and to get indexed by major search engines as soon as possible.
So, I spent a week or two writing search engine optimized content for my new online business.
I usually don't submit my new web sites to search engines for indexing. I prefer when my sites are found on other web sites and get spidered automatically.
One of easiest ways to have a link to a web site from other sites is by writing and distributing high quality articles. So, I wrote an article about two-tier affiliate programs and submited it to major article directories.
